Microsoft matches Google Lens with AI-powered visual search for Bing

  Microsoft matches Google Lens with AI-powered visual search for Bing Microsoft has launched a new “visual search” function for Bing which lets users snap a picture of something with their phone to search for it online. The new visual search is available in a range of apps, including the standalone Bing app on iOS and Android; Microsoft Launcher on Android; Microsoft Edge on Android, and coming soon to Edge on iOS. You can use it to search for things like breeds of dogs, famous landmarks, and even items of clothing. The app will try to identify what it sees and, in the case of consumer goods, find places to buy them online.

Calgary International Airport (IATA: YYC, ICAO: CYYC), branded as YYC Calgary International Airport , is an international airport that serves the city of Calgary , Alberta, Canada.

“North Star is what ancient mariners used to navigate and it was effectively a key compass point that they used to get where they needed to go. It’s not something you can ever reach but it is something that guides you, keeps you safe and makes sure you go the right direction,” said Bob Sartor, president and CEO of the Calgary Airport Authority.

“We talk about effortless and memorable, we talk about hospitality, so if what we’re working on doesn’t touch one of those touch points, then we probably shouldn’t be doing it. So that’s what North Star is all about.”

Sartor said they hope to take the existing 50,000 jobs directly related to airport activity and increase it to nearly 60,000, with the aim of becoming the economic engine of the city.

Calgary International Airport will undergo a redesign, including new colours — red, grey, blue and gold — and patterns that reflect Calgary and the province.

The colour red is intended to reflect the “dramatic landscape,” while the pattern within the red represents the foothills and the Rocky Mountains. Grey is intended to showcase Calgary’s urban landscape and its downtown.

Blue is representative of the mountains, rivers and sky, and is also a nod to the provincial flag, while gold is showcasing the Prairies and our agricultural history, the patterns representing wheat and barley while also being a nod to the provincial flag.

The Airport Authority’s new vision is inspired by the things that make Calgary and southern Alberta unique.

“Even the voice that will help our guests find their way when they look at a map will sound uniquely Calgarian — open, friendly, clear and helpful,” said Sartor.

Montreal sees biggest job growth among Canadian, U.S. cities

  Montreal sees biggest job growth among Canadian, U.S. cities Thanks in part to its high tech and creative sectors, Montreal saw 3.6 per cent job growth last year, putting it in the top spot out of cities in Canada and the United States, according to Montréal International. The economic agency looked at the 75,000 jobs added in the greater Montreal area last year and compared that to newly released data from the U.S. to find that Montreal had the highest growth percentage between Canada and the States. An economist with Montréal International, Christian Bernard, said he wasn't surprised when he saw the numbers. "We knew that Montreal was very attractive all around the world," Bernard said.

The new Halifax Stanfield logo and tagline: Connecting Means the World, were unveiled today at a public launch event for passengers, airport community members and stakeholders. “We are thrilled to share our new visual identity with the world,” says Joyce Carter, Halifax International Airport

YYC Calgary International Airport Aéroport international de Calgary YYC. WestJet Encore was launched from its Calgary base, the first new destinations announced were Fort St. John and Nanaimo, both in British Columbia, followed by Brandon, Manitoba.

This new approach will bring new retail and service offerings to YYC, improvements to the processes within the airport and enhancements to the domestic terminal.

Sartor said they want to highlight Calgary’s food and beverage scene, bringing in local breweries and food over the next three or four years to the airport for passengers to experience.

“We are going to be adding what we call pop-up retailers that are going to be electric food trucks that will go into those long concourses so people, if they want to grab a last-minute snack, they’ll be able to do that,” said Sartor.

“The neat thing about that is it’s almost like a pop-up shop, because you move all these things around the terminal and it creates a sense of newness and excitement as it relates to your food and beverage.”

There will be other high-tech updates, such as having screens on airplanes speak to passengers in their native language when they’re close to arriving at the airport gate.

“People will be able to navigate with their iPhone throughout the airport. You will be able to order food as you’re getting out of your car and we’ll have it available for you at the gate,” said Sartor.

Centralized pre-board screening will also be implemented, along with updated equipment to improve security wait times.

The baggage system in the domestic terminal is also close to being completed, which better connects to the international terminal and its baggage system.

A key factor of the plan, said Sartor, is to have appropriate connectivity between the airport and downtown.

“This includes the addition of an LRT line sometime in the future. Connectivity will be a significant factor in our long-term success,” said Sartor.

Those coming through YYC can expect to start seeing the new updates and changes in 2019.
